The Seasons Mod

seasonthumb

Ever since the inclusion of weather, Minecrafters have been asking that seasons be added. Some time ago, modder Nandonalt rose to the challenge and delivered the amazing Seasons mod, however after he exited the modding scene, there was nobody left to update it. Fear not, because modder Trak and tester RAWRMaD have us all covered. They updated the mod for 1.1. Let’s take a look at all the cool features, season by season.

Summer



Summer is the most “normal” of all the seasons. While there isn’t any snow and the leaves don’t change colors, the desert biomes become significantly more dangerous. Since it’s much warmer everywhere, deserts become unbearable and you take periodical damage when you are in the desert sun. Don’t worry, once you get in the shade you will be fine, but it’s dangerous nonetheless. In addition to the deserts becoming deadly, all rains become thunderstorms that destroy grass, which serves as a simple way to remove all that grass from the Spring. Wheat also grows 50% quicker and nights are shorter while days are longer.

Autumn

People love Autumn colors, which is why there are so many Autumn colored texture packs around, but this mod takes it to another level with it’s leaf color change. The thing that changes is the color gradient of leaves and grass (so it’s effectively compatible with any texture pack) and some flower textures which creates an amazing Autumn atmosphere. There are also more wheat drops, which combined with Summer’s fast growing wheat makes for VERY effective farming.

Winter

The Winter season will change your world the most.  It will snow everywhere all the time except for in desert biomes. Your lakes will freeze, your lawns will be covered in snow, and you will love it. It isn’t all that nice though: since it’s much colder, you can freeze and take damage if you aren’t wearing leather armor. Nights are also longer and days shorter, contrary to Summer. I think it would be great if there could be a steamy breathing particle effect were to show when you’re outside in the winter, but I guess that’s expecting more from an already complicated mod.

Spring

And lastly we have the Spring, the season for nature lovers. Snow and ice from Winter melt slowly, and grass, trees and flowers start growing all around (mow your lawn often), and therefore animals spawn more. The spring has great atmosphere as well, and the green color is very refreshing after the brown Autumn and white Winter.

Additionally the mod also adds two items, a Season Watch and a Thermometer which on right click shows information about the season and temperature respectively. Seasons are 7 Minecraft days long and the transition between them is covered up by a picture that pops up and tells you the season. The mod doesn’t require any additional mods (like ModLoader or AudioMod). You can download it here:

  2. Einvat says:

    Beautiful mod but is there a way i could increase the length of seasons as i think 7 days is to short?

    • LittleDinamit says:

      Almost everything is configurable in a config file, including the season length. There are instructions on the mod’s thread on the forums.

  3. liam says:

    what is that seed

  4. Joeganaut64 says:

    Wow great mod, pretty much just what i was looking for. Also glad i can increase the times between seasons. [:

  5. PleaseHelp says:

    I really do like this mod, but how do you uninstall it? every time i start in a world, whether or not the season’s turned to winter or not, its ALWAYS in the summer, which is irritating when it means u can’t even travel in the desert at day times

  6. Squee98 says:

    Where do i download it? looks epic o3o

  7. why!!! says:

    Why is it ALWAYS summer!!!

    • LittleDinamit says:

      Did you wait for more than 7 days or did you change anything in the config file? That could be the root of your problem.

  8. Zack says:

    will not load correctly in Mod Manager.the manager loads it half way,i get a high CPU usage warning about java script constipating my memory usage, and then nothing it just stops.If im doing something wrong or need something else to run this plz let me know, kthanks.

    • LittleDinamit says:

      Well I’d say the high CPU usage is really the problem, it could be your PC is not strong enough, or you don’t have the latest version of java.

  9. Bonecrusher160 says:

    Is it possible to make it so what season you save the game on, it is on when you get on later?? Because right now, I could save in winter, and it would start me back at Summer again.

    • LittleDinamit says:

      It’s not supposed to be like that. Check your config file for errors or settings you didn’t want to turn on.

      • Bonecrusher160 says:

        Well, I didn’t change anything but the season length, but I checked anyway and there isn’t a function dictating what season starts when u load or anything of that sort.

  10. SCOTT says:

    where by do you download it.

  11. XD says:

    is this available for 1.1?

  12. Bruyaglovae says:

    is there any way to warm yourself up while in a snow biome during winter? such as a fire would warm ya up if you hid in a cave or inside your house

    • LittleDinamit says:

      Being under something removes frostbite slowly, so just get under a tree and you’ll be fine. Same with deserts and their hot fever.

  13. super_man_56_on_MC says:

    does it work for 1.2.4

  14. why!!! says:

    I need help whenever i play and to day say 3 when i save and quit and come back into the world its day 1 again!!! Please help

    • LittleDinamit says:

      Unfortunately this is a bug with the mod. You’ll just need to wait for it to be fixed, then download the latest version that has the fix in it.
